    My first graders are really enjoying this app. The lessons are engaging and easy to follow. The challenges become increasingly more complicated but allow for learning and success the teacher guide and interface is well designed. It is also immensely helpful. My class is just loving this! One note: signing up and signing in with Clever can create issues so try to avoid that for now.

    I’ve used codeSpark Academy for a couple of years with my K-2 students and they really like it! It is a great way to introduce them to computer science concepts and computational thinking. I appreciate that the activities that are accessible to pre-readers, ELLs, and children with special needs. The unplugged activities are a great way to reinforce the concepts as students progress through the levels. Definitely recommend this free resource for any teacher who is looking to teach problem-solving through computer science.

    This is a awesome app, but can you add a JavaScript area where parents and school is, so you can enter your birthday and you can script using java, nice app tbh 👌👍
